things. president obama in his address in the east room did not once mention raising taxes. >> bill: i caught that. i know that. right. >> listen, he campaigned on it. boehner's aides who i've been talking to a lot and i cover obviously, are betting that obama had a campaign message and now it is time for the governing message. you saw that on friday. he did not mention race. paper said we're not going to raise tax rates but we're raise tax revenues. they're saying something very similar. what they're looking like they're going to do is keep rates the same for the time being. take the loopholes close them. some of the deductions, cap deductions. that will bring them into a new year with some revenue and then do a reform of the tax code. that's not easy. we're talking about tough stuff. they're going to have to agree to how much revenue the government should bring in through new tax code. what deductions are worth keeping. i mean -- you have a huge divide on that. monstrous divide. >> bill: just on tha
